If you own a BlackBerry, our services are compatible. Use our O2 International SIM Card for the United Kingdom with your unlocked device and keep receiving your emails while saving a bundle on all of your data and calling charges! Until now, when you traveled abroad, you had to activate an international data plan with your current carrier. Some providers even locked you up in a yearly subscription...but you still had to pay high roaming calling charges.
For Blackberry Internet Service (BIS) or Blackberry Enterprise Server (BES) users, we propose a flexible option that allows you to activate this service for the duration of your trip. Then you will pay simply for your usage.
